But for #NaBloPoMo, I’m reviving Food Friday with a twist. I’ll be writing something food-related instead of purely featuring food.
Does picnic food taste better?
There is a tiny park within walking distance of my workplace. Sometimes my colleague Cherry (say “Hello”, this is her second appearance on the blog. She was in a video once but I didn’t give a good answer in the video so I took it down. She designed my awesome book covers.) and I would buy takeaways and have them at the park.
She would buy a salad while I buy anything but salads. Salads are stupid. I used to refuse to eat salads that come as a side dish. But now, I’ll just eat them because I paid for it.
I really enjoy these picnic lunches, although balancing a bento box isn’t that easy.
I like the greenery and the warm breeze. I like the cat that I saw once and never saw again. I like that my spot sometimes get too hot because it’s right under a patch of sun.
I like that it’s not in a confined space. I like many things about that little park.
The food doesn’t really taste better at the park. It tastes the same. But the environment makes a difference. I always feel happier after a picnic lunch.
Here’s to more picnic lunches and less haze.
